Art, PE, Music, Geography, History, Computing, PSHCE, French and RE are all learnt through thematic approaches in Year 4. We study them through the guise of Ancient Greeks, Romans, Christmas, Australia, Healthy Living, Electricity and the Anglo-Saxons
Opportunities to include maths and written work are important to us at Saltergate, as well as applying hands-on learning and creative approaches to working in groups and independently.
In KS2 we enjoy having an Art Day to focus on a technique and an artist to develop our progression of skills. On this art day, we were looking at the artist Piet Mondrian and focusing on our painting skills. We really enjoyed learning about his life and how he became the famous artist that he is. We looked at Pier Mondrian's work and critiqued it as if we were walking around an art gallery displaying his work. We then used one of his pieces of work Composition II, to influence us in our own design and artistic creation. Using our knowledge of primary and secondary colours, we created a painting using tertiary colours by mixing. We are really proud of our final pieces of art work and had a fantastic day.
